So….maybe you saw that courtroom transcript that I shared yesterday floating around the Internet.

Did I miss anything? Is there some fantastic exchange in a legal setting that should be included? Make a suggestion below or shoot me an email.

And of course, for assorted other legal hilarity, you should regularly read Lowering The BarKevin’s book is good too.
